Can you tell us your secret?

I get many emails from viewers of this FB 2.0 Blog. Since many of the questions are similar, I thought that I might answer them here to help others.

Here is an email from Keith (my comments in red):


Hi Barlow,

I've been reading your posts ( along with ganns) and had a couple of questions that I was hoping you could find time to answer a couple of questions for a noob.

Gannfann is a technical trader that has recently started a new Blog. I have personally had the chance to have conversations with him and would recommend him and his Blog to anyone that wishes to learn more about trading.

In addition to Gannfann's market prowess, he is a very nice man and always takes the time to explain and teach in a responsible manner.

You can see Gannfann's Blog here:

The first was about the fishbone trade. Are there any plans to release the way the entry and exit points are chosen?

Keith, there are no plans to release how the entry and exit points are chosen. The FB 2.0 Trade (Fishbone) is a proprietary trade owned by The Saxon Institute. The Saxon Institute has developed many trades and uses them on a daily basis.

The second is I'm new to the trading of futures (and active trading in general). I was wondering if you had any suggestions on what I should focus on learning. I've been following ganns blog and yours, however its hard to figure out why points are chosen for entry or exit. I've been reading and playing with charts, too. I'm wondering if there's something else I should be looking at or trying to pick up.

Thanks for your time.


Keith, you are doing the right thing now. Watching other traders is certainly a great starting point. The Saxon Institute is opening a new Blog soon (I hope next week), for the purpose of helping traders like yourself. The new blog will have daily content that is educational and informational and will be my best work.

Thank you for your email Keith and stop back often.
